drank Mandarin Green by Adagio Teas

The scent of the tea in the tin – very mild. Can’t smell an orange or cinnamon hint in the tea.

While steeping, the leaves almost tripled in size. I’m used to the leaves expanding in water, but this was amazing. Like one of those amazing sponge toys – gets 10x bigger in water.

Once steeped, the green scent of the green tea definitely came out – but again, I can’t smell the orange.

The flavor is very delicate, and light, and the flavor of the orange is a very light note in the back of your mouth. But don’t oversteep – bitterness creeps in.

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
